"What is the source of our first suffering? It lies in the fact that we hesitated to speak. It was born in the moment when we accumulated silent things within us."

Message From Bobbie:

Possibility opens two doors simultaneously: challenge and opportunity. Challenge says, "Face fear and learn to be fearless." Opportunity says, "Don’t hesitate! Fear is a barrier but it is also the bridge."

When we find our true inner voice, the one we may have silenced long ago to be better accepted and to not rock the boat; we reach across the chasm of fear to bridge our future.

Possibility and the Voice Within

"I joined Rise Up! because I couldn’t find a personal dream that motivated me. I know, that sounds crazy to me today too! Now I am flush with new dreams. Possibility almost feels pre-determined. But just a year ago, I walked around being just ok and I tried to get-along. That was how I lived my life! At Rise Up! I finally found my inner voice and I learned how to use it!"

Susan put her "time in," as she says today, as a bookkeeper. Susan developed, "a nice little practice," keeping books for young aggressive entrepreneurs with much bigger dreams than she.

"I loved listening to their dreams and witnessing their belief in themselves. I lived through other people’s dreams. I never heard an inner voice calling me to experience my own dream."

"At Rise Up! I learned to stay calm, centered, and listen to my inner voice. Everyone thought of me as a quiet, confident, mouse - me too! Who would believe the voice in my head was filled with judgment and was harsh and angry? When we listened to our inner voices, I heard what I realized I’d been listening to all my life: a running dialogue of my shortcomings on good days and complete failures on bad days."

"How could something as important as belief in possibility result from silence? I was shocked that’s exactly what happened with the exercises we did to "stay," and I found the small strong voice within. MY TRUE VOICE was calling me to take action, big action, and for the public good, in a powerful way. Boy, did my inner voice have different plans for my life than the one I was living!"

Featured Exercise:

Finding and hearing your true inner voice is a practice everyone can learn. If this is new to you, here are some simple techniques to get you started!

  1. The true inner voice hides in the noise and confusion that is in our daily lives. The first step to hearing our inner voice is to find a place of quiet. And that means separation from all the noise!
  2. Make a shift to allow for a space of silence. A shift towards silence can be very small: i.e.: Wake up 5 minutes earlier every morning, (that inner voice LOVES the dark and stillness!) sit up in bed to keep yourself awake and take deep, purposeful breaths. Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth. As you inhale feel the breath stream as if it’s a slow river: lungs to belly to lower abdomen, all the way to your feet.
